Fans pay tribute at their home stadium.

The Colombian side made the request to regional football confederation CONMEBOL in a statement.

It asked of CONMEBOL “that the Copa Sudamericana title be handed to Chapecoense Football Association as an honorary trophy for its great loss, and as a posthumous homage to the victims of the fatal accident that has put our sport in mourning.”

Chapecoense and Atletico Nacional were supposed to have faced off Wednesday in the first-leg of the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the second most prestigious club football tournament in South America after the Copa Libertadores.

CONMEBOL said in a statement earlier that the match was suspended until further notice.

“We are in contact with the authorities and are waiting for official reports.”

A source close to CONMEBOL told AFP it was “very unlikely” that the final would ever be played.

Meanwhile, Brazil outfit Corinthians called on the country’s football authorities to let the team remain in the top-tier of Brazilian football without fear of relegation for three years, with all Serie A clubs reportedly agreeing to the request.

In support of the relegation exemption, the clubs also agreed that they would send players to Chapecoense on-loan for free during that period as the footballing community rallied round in support of the tragedy-hit team.

It is also being reported that French giants Paris Saint-Germain have informed UEFA that they will donate €40 million to Chapecoense.
